Also I know that none of my mares have any tobiano parents for several generations.

No, nothing up close, but there are some wonderful old lines, many pinto, and I believe almost every horse you have goes back to Rowdy, and your stallion has Falabella in the mix as well.

I printed out your AMHA pedigrees on all your horses, and at the bottom of each pedigree are the Show Results for all the horses with Show Records with the AMHA.  Lots of nice old lines that are well known!

One of your girls is only registered AMHR, which only gives a few generations, and you have to go through many pedigrees to actually get a complete picture, and most of those go back to the AMHA at some point. 

But you have some wonderful lines, and several pinto lines running through, so the "genes" may well be there -- even if not visually!

Has anyone used the Animal Genetics tests? I have heard some tests are not as reliable. Just curious if anyone has had any experience with them.

Yes, Animal Genetics is the testing site I recommend to all.  They are reliable and reasonable.

For quality color testing, either Animal Genetics in FL or UC Davis in CA.

I use them exclusively.  The tests that I do appear to be fine.  Now, the results are back (emailed to you) in 48 hours - VERY sweet...

The tests that are not considered "real" are tests for brown (have been proven to be wrong - papers now out saying why).  I don't believe Animal Genetics have ever offered that one (but may have years ago).

There are some new color tests going to be coming out - think someone published early - really upsetting some others in the color genetics field.  I don't fully understand, but it is with white patterning and I "THINK" it's to do with specific breed/bloodlines in full size horses.  I COULD be wrong on that one.  Know that the one genetic FB site I follow had quite a bit of chatter on that last week.

I sent in color tests recently, I am hoping to get results next week. So if anyone wants to make a final guess they are welcome to. I was also able to figure out that her dam is registered as a buckskin, (although in the only picture I saw she appeared to be palomino.)

My mare is black. My stallion is negative for LWO. And now I have another question :-\ ;D. One of my other mares has recently grown an interesting pattern on her back. The white is increasing and the raised dapples have just recently appeared. She is 3. Her sire is a buckskin and her dam is a smokey black. Is this the start of lacing?

I am hopeless with Colors , so will leave it to the experts.

Ill have a guess and say it is lacing and from my understanding (which is limited when it comes to coloring etc) the white will increase over the years ?

Did either of her parents have lacing ?

From the pictures I have seen they do not appear to have it.
